How do I remove Snapdo software from my mozilla firefox browser bar?

Posted

I accidently installed some software called 'snapdo' onto my computer a short while ago which did a few annoying things. It changed my hope page to their website. Changed my Firefox search bar to the search engine. I have so for managed to solve these problem but the problem I've still got is that if I put a search word rather than a web address in the fire fox browser bar it still take me to this page: http://search.snap.do

Please would you help me fix this problem?

Thanks Pete

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
